I’ve dedicated my life to loving others. I wake up everyday chasing opportunities to make this world just a little bit better.
“Give people flowers & go to outer space”. I came up with that up years ago, dreamin’ of what I wanted my life to be. I love getting lost in the concept of space, it's boundless, I can go anywhere and do anything. It’s how I think we should live our lives, with no limits. If you can dream it, you can do it. I always tell my Dad, half joking, “I’m just livin' the dream”, but the fact is, I am. I get to spend everyday designing ways for others to feel loved. it's my life work, and I'm so thankful for that.
I trust my life with each person listed below. That might feel like a bit much for an “about us” section, but it's the truth. 143 Collective is a family, the work we do means everything to us. I’ve cried with these people, they’ve seen me at my best, but most of all, they’ve seen me swing and miss. Through it all, we stand together, serving humanity.
From a super-mom, to a savvy entrepreneur, she’s done so much in this life, a true team player and no one else I’d rather be in the trenches with. If I can’t do something, am losing my mind, or can’t seem to focus, she’s the best second set of eyes on any project. I love her kids like they we’re mine and her husband Toa, one of the most brilliant people I know.
Ryan FinkMission Produce - Vice President
I keep this guy close because he shoots straight and there’s never any BS. I value you his business expertise, the pragmatism of how he sorts his thoughts, but most importantly because he’s a grinder. Shows up early, stays late, he just gets it. A true family man that puts others first.
Erik WildeSotherbys Ojai - Owner/Broker
Some lucky twist of fate put Erik in my life. From real estate, to figuring out how make this world a better place, he never questions my ridiculous ideas. He just says “yep, I’m in, how can I help?”. With a beautiful family, a real estate company that's crushing it, this guy still carves out time to do for others. He'll never tell you about it, it just gets done. This guy is my brother and everything he brings to the table is vital to our efforts.
Adriana BecerraDisney/FOX - Executive Director - Media Services
She fit in from the word "go", like everyone else in this group, I knew she was smarter than me from the jump. Honorable, that’s how I describe her. She’s says it, she does it, and always hits it out of the park. No questions or hesitations, Adriana hops into any situation and becomes a valuable piece of the puzzle. Somehow she puts up with me after all these years and for that I'm grateful!
Chantelle LimonBroker/Office Manager Re/max Integrity
She gets stuff done, puts up with my tornado type schedule, and is always supporting those in need of a little extra love. She's always had the ability to see what I miss, her value is absolute, she’s been around the longest, and thank goodness for that.
Chris HotchkissPartner/JH3 Industries
A true professional and the guy you want on your team. Just a human that understands what it’s all about. I know that if Chris is around, I’ll always have someone to lean on. More than anything, Chris wants to make life better for others. It shows in how he lives day in and day out. An honor to work with and someone I feel lucky to know.
Jash HamadaOwner Shmosaics Custom Mosaics & Tile
There’s no place to really start, the kindest human I know. Last second help, doing anything that is asked and going out of his way to pick up the slack. No matter the cause or situation, Jash is someone that you can count on, and that’s rare.
